I need help. Im building an i5 computer and need to know if this will work...
I have a power supply with 2/4 pin power conectors and a motherboard that has
a 8 pin cpu conector on it. BUT...I want to buy this pre braided sleeved kit from
Performance-pcs.com that has a 8 pin cpu extention in it. Now, my question is...can I just
plug the 2/4 pin conections from my PSU into the female part ofthe 8 pin extention?
You can do that but you are going to have to do some Moto-level cable management with all that extra wire in your case,
the 4+4 is designed to split in case of a motherboard only having a 4pin Cpu socket, they click together to fit the 8pin socket or an extention
Tx850's cables in a fulltower,
the best pics are on the second page, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/forum2.php?config=t...
now if you add extensions to that, you are looking at an extra yard or more of cable to hide,
and even I wouldn't envy you that task,
Why not ask if anyone here will sleeve the Psu for you at a reasonable cost?
theres bound to be someone local enough to make it a viable option
So I take it hat the awswer is yes? I was also thinking that insted of doing a whole sleeve job I would just replase the female ends of the sleeved kit with the conector ends of the modular wires to the psu.

This just makes it an extension, leading you to the same problem we're all trying to guide you away from,
Hell if you lived in the U.K. I'd offer to do it for you hehehe
I'm curious as to what case and mb the OP has
In many instances the cpu power header ends up in the upper left hand corner of the case and isn't visible with a tower cooler in place
My big azz IFX-14 covers mine almost completely, in order to see the pretty single braid cable I'd have to have it running out in the open instead of behind the tray
